Robin Knox-Johnston

A salute to a great and modest man, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.

If you have not already seen this I can not recommend to highly this entire video which I sailed into by chance this evening.

Robin has been and continues to be a very fine example of a real man, an inspiration world wide to thousands possibly millions including me.
Robin has been a considerable influence in my life.

It has been my very good fortune to be personally commissioned to paint 3 pictures for Robin, “Roaring Forties’,
Roaring Forties
Roaring Forties, the print
‘The Clipper Way’ and “Dumra, departing Bombay”

Robin Knox-Johnston commissioned this painting of Dumra
and more especially, I am honoured to be considered one of his friends. 🙂⚓
This Gordon Frickers art signature is on all my more recent paintings.
